Disney’s Jungle Cruise will now open on July 24, 2020. The Disneyland ride based movie was originally set to release on October 10, 2019. No other films currently set for that weekend would’ve served as real competition to Jungle Cruise so it’s likely this move is based mostly on the post-production process. Disney has stayed suspiciously tight-lipped on upcoming Marvel release dates so it’s unknown if this move is related to those films in some way.

Jungle Cruise will follow Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson as a boat captain who takes Emily Blunt and her on-screen brother Jack Whitehall on a journey into the Amazon jungle. It won’t be an easy trek for the heroes though as a rival expedition will pursue them. Not to mention the fact that they will have to deal with wild animals as they search the jungle. Johnson will produce alongside Beau Flynn, John Davis, John Fox, Dany Garcia, and Hiram Garcia.

Johnson last appeared in Skyscraper over the summer and will star in next year’s fifth season of Ballers. Blunt last starred in A Quiet Place earlier this year and lent her voice to Sherlock Gnomes over the summer.

Jungle Cruise will premiere in theaters worldwide on July 24, 2020.
